|New resources to assist with managing preparations for 15 December 2021|
|The Premier announced that employers must undertake a COVID-19 risk assessment under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 and Public Health Directions.|
New resources to help you are available on the WorkSafe website now, including a risk assessment tool, fact sheets, Safety Plan templates, Safety Plan review guides and video content.
The WorkSafe site also includes guidance notes for industry such as How to deal with a COVID-19 case at your accommodation venue (download here).
Conducting a COVID-19 risk assessment and the ‘risk profile’ you develop helps you make informed decisions about the effectiveness of the COVID-19 controls you have in place.
It’s especially important if you are considering specific controls that are not required for your workplace by Public Health (such as the mandatory vaccination of your workers). It will help your business to remain safely operating as we welcome interstate visitors from 15 December.
|A Case and Outbreak Management Plan captures your business’s roles and responsibilities in preparing for and responding to a confirmed case of COVID-19 in your workplace or setting.|
When a case or outbreak of COVID-19 is identified, Public Health works closely and quickly with the business to stop the virus from spreading.
Having a plan ready will alleviate some of the pressure you will face in the instance where there is an outbreak. Information including templates, fact sheets and checklists are available on the Coronavirus website here.
For a list of considerations to help you minimise disruption for your business when cases of COVID19 are present in the community, please visit the Tasmanian Coronavirus web page:
